I have to spend a week in Burbank for work and will looking to explore, food-wise, having never spent much time in Southern CA. I'll probably be dining alone mostly, and will need places nearby sometimes but other times will have time to roam. I would probably rather not go fancy, but would love to find interesting local places or ethnic that I can't get in the NYC area.

So, perhaps a trip or two to the San Gabriel Valley for Chinese? We can get good Sichuan, Northwestern / Xian, Lanzhou, Fujian, etc. and ok Cantonese in NYC. What should I try? Asian beyond Chinese? I don't get great Thai or Vietnamese out east. Others?

Mexican suggestions?

For nights I work late and can't travel far, anything in Burbank?

I'm up for any ideas. Thanks.
